~ BONDS OF FRIENDSHIP~ Image

There have been many times that I'd lose grip and then fall,
And, you were there beside me to help me rise above it all.
There have been many times when I'd reach the end of end,
And, you inspired me by giving hope to just start over again!
YOU INSPIRED ME!

There have been times when I had lost all that I had gained,
And, you brought me bright sunshine to send away the rains.
There have been many times that I'd just quit, giving all up,
And, you'd bring me a drink of renewal from friendship's cup!
YOU WERE SUNSHINE!

Then, all the times that I had been slipping and sinking so fast,
You encouraged me to reach out to grasp hope that would last.
As, I was spinning in frantic circles of chaos, around and round,
You threw out the anchor that placed me back on solid ground!
YOU RENEWED HOPE!

The bond of friendship that I have with you is one richly blessed,
As, it is one that has survived, as it passed every friendship test.
You and I've remained friends in the good times, as well as bad,
Your pledge of loyalty, as a friend is the truest I have ever had!
OUR FRIENDSHIP IS BLESSED!

The commitment of "togetherness" we have had all these years,
Will surely continue to build as we move onward past life's tears;
And, as we reach the point in our lives, called "The Golden Age",
I shall look back and extend a thank you for each and every day!
OUR FRIENDSHIP WILL LAST!

Sheila, Thankful for special bonds of friendship!

Dearest Sheila

This is one of the most touching of your poems that I have read. This is a poem that has your heart and soul all over it. There's many a thing that you can find in friendship even if that friendship doesn't last. There are ups and downs in friendship as well but this is the one relationship that you'll have for all eternity!!
The relationship between a husband and his wife, a child and its mother, between siblings and other family relations always has a tendency to end but in friendship when one ends, you turn back and there's another waiting for you. The cycle never ends....This is an exquisite poem in honour of friendship and I am truly honoured by your friendship and the love it extends. Thank you for sharing this beautiful poem, Sheila. God bless you and all those you love.

THIS IS CERTAINLY ONE OF THE MOST TOUCHING FRIENDSHIP POEMS THAT I HAVE READ ALSO, DEAR SHELIA, AND WAS SAID YOU PUT YOUR HEART AND SOUL INTO THIS, AND YOU LOVE FOR YOUR FRIENDS IS A BLESSING FOR THOSE OF US WHO HOLD THAT BOND WITH YOU SO DEAR. YOU CERTAINLY HAVE BEEN ON A ROLLER COASTER AT TIMES WITH ALL THAT YOU HAVE BEEN THROUGH, BUT YOU ARE STRONG AND HAVE SAW YOU WAY THROUGH IT ALL, NOT AN EASY TASK FOR ANYONE. THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST PERSONAL WRITES THAT I THINK YOU HAVE WRITTEN. IT'S ABOUT YOU AND HOW MUCH FRIENDSHIIP MEANS, YOU DO NOT TAKE IT FOR GRANTED, BUT YOU CHERISH THOSE WHO SHARE THAT BOND, AND I BELIEVE THAT INCLUDES JUST ABOUT EVERYONE HERE AT NETHUGS. YOU ARE VERY SPECIAL DEAR ONE. THANK YOU EVER SO MUCH FOR THE GIFT OF YOUR FRIENDSHIP, THE GIFT OF YOURSELF, AND OF COURSE YOU TREMENDOUS LOVE FOR GOD. BE BLESSED IN EVERY WAY MY FRIEND.

Live today as if it were your last, for tomorrow it will be your past, but live it with peace in mind, joy to find, and for God divine!

Dearest Sweet Shakela.....this poem does come from the innermost part of my heart and spirit, as I am so grateful to God for all the wonderful friends that I have had in my life - and especially those that I have met here at NetHugs! My life has truly made a 180 degree turn since I have joined, as I have met the best people in the world.....and truly the world.....here on the forums!
God bless every one of you, and thank you for the bonds of friendship that we have forged together!
With lots of love,
and in friendship!

Dear Steve.....
Your precious words have deeply touched me as you have remarked about this write of deep friendship that I made formed with so many here at NetHugs, with you certainly included. My life is completely different than it was a year ago, because of so many of you, and I praise God for these wonderful gifts of friendship!
Yes, I have been on a roller coaster ride for most of my life, but by the grace and love of God, I am making it through life - sometimes just sliding by the skin of the teeth, as the old saying goes.....but, I am making it! It would not be possible if it were not for the love of precious friends who are inspired by our Lord Jesus Christ!
Love and Hugs!
Sheila

Sheila, this is *****5 stars for sure! Absolutely one of your best! Friendship is all of this. I nominate this one for an e-card! I would for sure send this to my best friend!! ((Jeanette)) P.S. Just as soon as Mom (Janice) shows me how to do nominations. She spends every Thurs. at my house visiting James so she should be here soon!
